Photography studios

Each bay is provided with three wall-mounted backdrops, in black, grey and white, and coloured backdrops and green screens are also available. The studios provide space for both still photography and shooting film.

The studios are also stocked with a wide array of lighting modifiers, and Bowens lighting kits, cameras and location accessories are available from the Loan Store.
